Some Pigeons Are More Equal Than Others

For Julian Charriere and Julius von Bismarck's piece in this year's International Architecture Exhibition (Venice Biennale), they made a pigeon trap which, once the unsuspecting pigeon had be lured in, would spray paint it in various colours. The pigeon was then released to display its new plumage. It has been tried out in Copenhagen before, and has now entered 'phase two' which I think is doing the same thing but in Venice. Anyway, the pigeons look nice (although it does bring up questions of cruelty etc etc).
